Re: Share your cleaning schedule!!

I wash dishes as I use them
I dont allow clutter on my counters
I clean the bathrooms as we go
Laundry is sorted as it is taken off and put in the right bin
I only sweep and vacuum as needed and spot mop
Toys are kept in only one room
Toys are picked up before each meal, bed time, and leaving the house
Everything in the house has a place, and I make sure of it before I bring it into the house
I fold the laundry as it comes out and stack it on my bed so I have no choice but to put it away
Kids are great glass cleaners, trash gatherers, dusters, picker uppers
I am lazy when it comes to toilets I just put the gel in there and let it go instead of scrubbing

Wash dishes shortly after we eat
Sweep in the afternoon and evening
I do laundry on Sunday and Thursday (the whole bit, wash, dry, hang and fold, put away)
The toy room is the kids' responsability and throughout the day I remind them to clean up after they are done with things so it doesn't become too messy
Clean table and around table after we eat
Bathroom gets cleaned usually twice a week
Vaccum as needed (we only have a few rooms with carpet)

I use Motivated Moms. It's a whole year of weekly cleaning schedules and it keeps my house from looking like a bomb went off.

Re: Share your cleaning schedule!!

I do diapers every other day and laundry as needed afterwards.
About half an hour before DH comes home I pick up all the toys, do any stray dishes and vacuum. I wear DS or put him in a high chair while I do it. I read to him or allow him to play with one thing until DH comes home.
I cook most nights and DH does the dishes.
On Friday I have my mom Skype with DS while I do the bathroom and kitchen.

I like the Skype idea!
